With major developments in car safety over the last five years, today's emergency crews face far greater challenges and complexities in extricating casualties safely from vehicles.

As a provider of rescue services, it is vital that staff are fully aware of the latest technological updates and the impact they can have on fast and effective extrication and resulting outcomes for casualties. The range of courses from the two-day Introductory "safe working" programme through to the more advanced four-day course are all designed to standards approved by the World Rescue Organisation (WRO).

Courses are delivered in the English language by accredited trainers of the United Kingdom Rescue Organisation. Each course carries CPD points awarded against the Institution of Fire Engineers which will be recognised within the Middle East and beyond.

  • Safe Working - 2 days
  • Rescue Technician - 3 days
  • Advanced Rescue Technician - 4 days

This new range of courses focuses on:

  • Exposure to latest developments in new vehicle technologies
  • Principles of trauma care
  • Casualty-centered approach mini exercises to aid with incident commander decision making processes

Topics include:

  • The Officer in Charge’s responsibilities at RTC's
  • Glass management and stability techniques
  • New vehicle technology and its impact on extrication technique
  • Extrication technique
  • The team approach
  • Supplementary restraint systems
  • Specialist RTC equipment

and IFE certified courses.
